Hi and welcome to the JBFX Profile page, I am a highly skilled 3d generalist and Visual Effects Artist based in Wellington, New Zealand (Aotearoa). I have advanced knowledge in applications such as MAYA and 3DStudio MAX, this includes Modelling, Texturing, Rigging, Animation, FX Simulation and Rendering, I also have excellent general skills in other programs like PhotoShop, AfterEffects and MudBox.

I now wish to offer these skills I have learned over the years to everyone, my goal is to provide a quality 3D and VFX service to help accomplish the dreams and ideas many of us have. No matter how large or small the project is I will offer the best possible service with outstanding results in a professorial environment.

  • image of Tim M. Simple Animated Music Lyric Video $744.00 USD

    “Jacob is a star in the making. Extremely impressed with his ability to understand what we wanted, and bringing it to fruition. We expressed our idea, but it is Jacob that ran with it and came back with how he envisioned the video to go. We quickly agreed, and we have a video that we are very happy with... more than happy, ecstatic. His communication during the project was A+, which is a tough thing to say when we live a half a world apart. He was professional and responsive, keeping an open ear to suggestions. I look forward to a decade from now, when I can say I knew him before everyone else did!”
